Hey, I'm James.
I love Lala Land, swimming a mile a day, instant photos, coffee, the feeling of sand between my toes and the TV Show Lost.
I love and appreciate a good lawn, and Bargain loving Brits in Beniform is peak television.
I'm more interested in telling your story as a couple, than forcing you into posed positions.
Random moments from my life
- I ran a half marathon without training in 1 hour 42 minutes, but then couldnt walk properly for a walk afterwards, the struggle was real. 1/10 do not recommend.
- I worked in McDonalds when I was 16, and my friends came throught the drive-thru and when I grabbed their money, they pulled me out of the window into their car and drove me 100 metres from the store and let me out. It didnt go down well.
- I've been to Reading Festival 9 times, seeing a surprise Green Day set at 11am was pretty cool, running through a blazing inferno of tents not so much.
My sons, are awesome.
This is them actually looking at the camera. Chasing them around from the first day they were mobile, gave me the skills needed to capture those special moments on Wedding days. Ever asked your kids to smile, sit still & strike a pose? Exactly.
What got me into Wedding Photography?
At first the sheer idea of photographing a Wedding struck me with fear, I mean, I hadnt even been to many Weddings so the thought of me being trusted to capture someones special day was a little daunting to say the least!
After succesfully caputuring my kids personalities in a load of candid photos, I was told a few times by friends and family that I should try shooting a wedding, and when a close family member mentioned they were engaged I jumped at the chance to be their wedding photographer! Hundreds of youtube videos about Wedding Photography later, the big day arrived and it was so awesome that I created a website and have never looked back.
So many special moments happen on a Wedding day, and being the photographer I witness many moments the couple don't. Mainly due to the fact they can't be everywhere at once, not to mention a wedding is essentially a large single gathering of all your friends and family, everyone wants a piece of you! I pride myself on documenting a Wedding day as it unfolds in front of me, often hunting them out tirelessly throughout the day.
What area are you located in?
I'm located in Sunny Ramsgate, Kent. It's the most south eastern tip of England, and we can even see France from our beaches. Our district of Thanet was even an Island hundreds of years ago!
How far in advance should I book?
I reccomend booking me as soon as you set the date for your wedding. I am often booked way in advance, saying that I do have key dates available.
What are your rates?
I provide a number of different packages which you can find over here
Do you offer any other services?
